Fourth grade teacher, Mrs. McCollum, is the latest to join the Sokikom bandwagon at Forest North. First discovered as an app on Edmodo, Sokikom pairs behavior management with educational activities. Students earn badges for great behavior. With those badges, they can then create an avatar or buy goods at the Sokikom store. Likewise, students can play any of Sokikom's math games to earn extra badges and "money" to jazz up their avatar and buy goods at the Web store.

This has been a great way to get students motivated to take on additional math challenges while at home.
